DBE Blooper Reel #1: Jelly Isn't A Good Prize!

Here is a sketchy clip from The Price is Right. It starts out with Bob then goes to black and follows with visual static, but after that, you get a glimpse of me doing what I did thousands of times -- and this one with superb lighting!

I came across the clip several months ago and tried to post it then, but to no avail. A couple of days ago, I came across it again, and even though I have stated that my next post will be on Easter, I couldn't help but give it one more try. Obviously, this time it took :)

See you again next Sunday.


  1. Anitra
    great clip of you! You were the best.I wish we could find more great
    Clips of the best era in TPIR History.I know this was hard work,I could
    just imagine having to stand,look,model in just the right angle for the
    Camera.But one would never know it coming from a true Profesionl that you are.The Anitra,Janice era was the best.the other models were just ok.They just did not deliver the Mother Lode!

    1. Hello Roger,

      It's lovely to hear from you. Glad you like the clip. It's always fun to find something new. I too wish we had a lot more of those old TPIR moments available. Maybe one day the Jay Wolpert Flaky Flicks will come out in a collection. Until then, I'll have to trust that everything happens in its own perfect time :)

      Thank you for your wonderful compliments. A couple of the main reasons that "Price" was such hard work, were the long hours, and especially, the intensity of focus you needed in order to be on top of things. You had to be riveted on everything that was going on every minute of the day. Someday I'll go into this in more depth. Meanwhile, I hope that you are finding some creative and fulfilling moments, Roger. Sending my warm wishes to you and your family, ~ Aneet

  2. Hello Aneet!
    I've been so busy over the last two months that I haven't had a chance until now to catch up on your newest postings! I'm especially mad at myself (being as Irish as they come), for missing your side bar post in a "Shamrock Shot" I gather?

    Anyway, love your recent posts and pics as always! I do indeed look forward to them!
    You've quite a talent.
    Keep smiling!

    Terry Quinn

    1. Terry,

      Lovely to hear from you again. And ah yes, those sidebar shots do come and go. Sorry you missed it too. But then again, something else is always waiting around the bend.

      Thanks for your kind and generous words.

      Sending good wishes your way, ~ Aneet

    Jelly actually IS a good prize when it's modeled by you Anitra! :)

    1. Jonathan,

      I love your charming message. It is so original and surprising. Wish I could find a new way to say it made me laugh out loud, because I truly did. But that phrase has become so trite. How 'bout, I burst out laughing, or maybe, I chortled vociferously? I'll do anything to keep from ever using LOL.

      Great to hear from you, ~ Aneet

    2. And oh, I forgot to mention, I watched your drumming videos, and I just want to say that you have amazing talent. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.

    Hey Hey Aneet,

    Really glad you saw the drumming videos. My style is a culmination of two famous drummers I had the good fortune to have had as friends and have studied with: Louie Bellson and Joe Morello. I remember meeting Gene Krupa at a concert when I was 12 and saying to him that someday I would love to be as good as him. He replied with "Don't worry son, someday you will be better than me". Those words I never forgot.

    Thanks again for watching. My best to you as always......


    1. I'm delighted that I saw them too. You studied with great musicians. My Dad mentioned Louis Bellson many times. And now, you carry on their legacy with your own special gifts.

      I love your story and Gene Krupa's words.

      Warm wishes to you Jonathan, ~ Aneet

  5. Anitra-butter and jelly? Okay, add some Lay's potato chips and a big glass of chocolate milk and I'll be a happy camper.


    1. And that is The Portrait of an Artist as a Happy Camper.

      Chris, Your message made me smile (of course.) ~ Aneet

  6. Hello Aneet!-

    This was taken from the same episode which featured the showcase with you, Janice, and Dian dressed up like the Keystone Cops. As a matter of fact I think in this episode, there is a total of 3 closeups of you during an item up for bids while you're displaying a product that would go to the contestant as an added bonus, in this case, jelly.

    I've seen a number of those early hourlong episodes, and in that era there were some absolutely radiant closeups of you, some where the lighting accentuated you perfectly. I know we've talked about Marc Breslow a lot, but also did you know that during the 1980s he won 4 Emmys for his work on TPIR?

    Well with Easter coming up this weekend, I hope your basket is full of spring flowers and lots and lots of dark chocolate.



  7. Joseph, hello, hello,

    Wow, you are so knowledgeable on the subject of "Price." These are very interesting details, and I'm so glad you have pointed them out. And no, I did not know about M. Breslow's Emmy's. This too is illuminating. During the time I was on the show, he also directed a movie. I wasn't able to find the title On-line, but, as I recall, it was an entertaining and fast-paced compilation of scenes and information about famous Hollywood films.

    Thank you so much, Joseph, for once again sharing your knowledge. I hope you have a very satisfying weekend as well.

    My good wishes to you, ~ Aneet

  8. Hi Miss Ford, ... or may I call you Anitra? Before I go any further, is this site still working?, ... today being April 2/13. I hope so!!

    Take care 'til then, D.

    1. Hello "D",

      Yes, this site is up. I am, however, only publishing once every two months for the time being, as I am involved right now in another project.

      If you'd like more information on the status of this blog, you can find it in my latest several posts (the most current published on March 15, 2013.

      Thank you for your interest.

      Sending you my good wishes, ~ Anitra
